More than just pumpkin – Annabel Karmel’s Top 100 Baby Purees


Before having kids, I was a cookbook collector. I didn’t actually cook from many of my books but did spend a lot of time looking at the pictures! That all changed when my babies came along and there was one book that I actually did cook from. Every day. For years. And it was written by Annabel Karmel.

Annabel Karmel is the top chef when it comes to cooking for babies. Once you decide to wean your baby and you’re ready to move on from plain mashed pumpkin, Karmel will have the recipes for you.

Karmel has published numerous books but begin the weaning process by arming yourself with Top 100 Baby Purees. The collection includes Karmel’s most popular purees from the delicious smooth apple, apricot, pear and vanilla puree to tasty sweet potato with spinach and peas or pumpkin risotto. Take a look at some of Karmel’s puree recipes and you’ll see just how simple and economical they are.


All of the recipes included in the book are easy, nutritious and are suitable for children aged six months and above. By the time your bub has tried all one hundred purees, they’ll probably be ready for finger food!
